: the rebels have taken the fight to syria's biggest cities, battling assad's strong holds, his palace in damascus, while fighters have overrun one of the largest military bases outside the city of aleppo. american officials fear the likelihood of assad using chemical weapons is rising. they say they have proof they've been prepared. we went to meet a man who shares those fears. driving along a dark back country road near turkey's border with syria. he told us that until 2008, he was a chief of staff in the chemical weapons program. he said he worked on the defense side, in charge of preparing troops for dealing with attacks and safety equipment. what specific chemical weapons does the assad regime have? he said they have mustard gas, along with a highly toxic nerve agent, vx, sarin and tabun. the regime has started to fall and deteriorate, he argues. it's highly possible assad will start using chemical weapons to kill his own people. >> i think it's a last-ditch effort and one they don't want to use but are considering it. >> reporter: if the regime crumbles, the u.s. fears the weapon
possibly include assad. >> makes the issue much more complex at least five different cities. u.s. officials say the syrians have already mixed the components for the deadly chemical weapon saran gas. the question remains whether he plans to use saran gas for murder against his own people. do u.s. officials say that they think that he would actually do this? >> well, behind the scenes, they appear to be quite worried. the president, defense secretary and secretary of state hillary clinton have publicly warned assad not to do so describings it a a red line the syrians say pretext for u.s. and outside military intervention. some we spoke to agree citing the unlikely hood that assad would use saran nerve gas near damascus where the winds could shift and gas his own regime. >> a key marker here is the upcoming moroccan summit. clearly the united states wants to gain the high ground by overhyping if you will the threat from the syrian army and using saran gas. the more they can make this threat real, the more leverage the administration ising going to have in morocco. >> next week in morocco, sec
